Usage of "Container Instances"

Leonard, Jared 51 Reputation points

On Azure, there is a "Container Instances" resource that can be made. My Azure admin made one, as well as a Container Registry, I uploaded an image to the registry, then tried to deploy that image onto the Container Instances, but I receive errors suggesting that my deployment would alter settings for the Container Instances, despite me not having passed in any changes to those settings.

I think part of this might be a misunderstanding of what I'm meant to use this resource for; Is a "Container Instances" resource meant to house many independently running containers, or is each "Container Instances" meant to be associated with a single container or multi-container image?

This is the one I'm talking about:


Azure Container Registry
Azure Container Registry
An Azure service that provides a registry of Docker and Open Container Initiative images.
